    looks really good man!

    Have you tried taking the adjusting collars out of the rear? Loads of people have done this on A3's, and it drops it about another 20mm, and is perfectly safe too.

    I'd try that, and space the rear wheels a tad, and loose the wind deflectors!

    Looks awesome in java green though, such a rare colour!

    What size are the LM's?

    Looks alright mate, nice colour and the rims aint bad either.

    Where did you get the wind deflectors? They serve a worthwhile purpose on the 8L but Im deciding whether to get them or not... It's so annoying when you open the window a touch and get soaked by any water the slides off the roof...

    You also have a wider car, space is slightly limited on an A3 shell.

    I've just noticed, it looks a little under-tyred for 18's. what size tyres are they? I'm guessing 215/35's from the slight stretch you've got?

    if you tried some 225/45/18's they should fill the arches a bit better, making it look a bit lower.

    Odd that it's not THAT low even with the adjusting collars removed. a mate of mine had a FWD 1.8T, and it was lower than yours even with the collars still in (but wound RIGHT down)

    have a search around the forum, milltek is a common choice for a3/s3 owners, have you thought about colour coding the bumpers or getting an s3 kit on it? would look mean in that colour.

    tbh i dont think i want to get it colourcoded or anything as i think it looks nicer more subtle, just want to do a few cosmetic mods then maybe more power!

    Is it possible to do this on the all A3s including the 1.6? Do you have a link to guide or anything?

    Thanks

    Its easy, if you have coil overs fitted to the rear, just take the spring out, remove the adjustment collar off of the bottom mount the replace the spring. 20mm Lower perfect ride height.
